  I made no comments to that effect.  Why do you think I expect that?
  I don't _compare_ the two languages -- I'm simply pointing out
  serious flaws in Scheme and how it is taught and used.  Since we
  don't have any data on how CL would be taught if it were where
  Scheme is, I fail to see how I could be thought to _expect_ any
  improvements just by changing the language being taught.

  Does anyone remember where I parked Air Force One?
